by the public. george w. bush started his planning social security reform and of course was drawn off that track onto many others. things happen, katrina happened. we could look back over the past five or six presidencies and see you never winder up when when you think you will. and flexibility is an asset for a president. heather: i want to talk about george w. bush and his legacy left behind following the terrorist attacks that happened hopb 9/11. w on 9/11. we had condoleezzaa rice, the national security adviser at the time. she says it puts the president whoever it is in a difficult situation, because he has to reassure persons americans, while at the same time not giving away any information that he himself might have that the public is not privy to, in terms of the investigation and trying to find the terrorists as we are doing there in boston right now, as president obama has to deal with that. >> reporter: that's true, one of the things that george w. bush said after 9/11 that i thought was the right thing to say and helpful is that people should go shopping. he got criticized for that.

in perspective ma during a won with the same percentage point that george w. bush won in 2004. he won with 0% participation electorate. he won with a greatly expanded number of registered voters, 40% of all eligible venezuelan but maduro, only 30% voted for him. >> charlie: a higher percentage of voters. >> it's a few percentage points lower. so the question is... >> that may be why... he's not... i think a lot of the chavez voters from last october... >> either stayed home. ... or even voted. the way it breaks down the way the electorate in venezuela, the way that chavez support, the remarkable support over the last decade breaks down is roughly 50% of people who don't like feel like their lives were better than chavez or they liked chavez better than who we were running as. gay and lesbian movements, urban barrios, peasant communities that have really felt like that they are part of chavez. they made chavez. i would say that maybe about 750,000 voters that voted for chavez either stayed home or voted for capriles. the question is where did they come from? i would say they're probably from
